Run a QuakeWorld server on your #RaspberryPi

Sorry everyone. Looks like the downloads have disappeared.

RawShark has been looking at running QuakeWorld on his Pi and has now come up with a way to do it. Here are his instructions (reproduced from his original thread):

1. download nQuakesv (linux server version) from

2. Use the script to download and install everything. Answer no to both “QTV” and “QWFWD” – no binaries yet for Pi

3. go to nquakesv / folder and backup mvdsv and ktx/ (rename)

4. download the raspberry pi binaries of these files from here:

5. give +x permissions to mvdsv (its called the multiview server and replaces the old qwsv binary)

6. add pak1.pak to /id1 folder if you have that file

7. to start your server, type ./run/

Shazaam! The server has started in 28501 port.

If you want to actually PLAY on the Pi, use this pre-compiled client binary:

You can also check out Quake III Arena and OpenArena on the Pi too.

    These links don’t work anymore, do you still have the zip files by any chance?
